Overview
What to Expect
An eventful day at the Angkor temples do not have to end at your hotel or heading over to Siem Reap’s Pub Street for a bite to eat and a drink. Within easy reach of Cambodia’s cradle of civilisation lies the country’s largest lake and one of Asia’s dominant sweet water basins. Tonle Sap’s (or Great Lake) surface changes dramatically in size during the dry and rainy season and due to this annual returning annual phenomenon, the Tonle Sap Lake is considered to be one of the world’s richest sources of freshwater fish. This huge natural reservoir forms the décor, alongside admiring local life on the lake, for an intimate sunset cruise with a cold drink, a snack and those you hold dear right next to you.

Our English-speaking Khmer guide and driver will be waiting for you at your hotel lobby to bring you over to the Tonle Sap Lake. The embarkation point of the lake lies around 15 kilometres south from downtown Siem Reap. Upon arrival, you will be warmly greeted by the captain of a traditional wooden boat, suitable to navigate the often shallow waters and sailing effortlessly through the floating houses that characterise the stature of the lake. The vessel sailing towards the sunset is completely at your disposal and with a cocktail in one hand and snacks in the other; your guide will explain how life on The Great Lake remains as it is for centuries. It is interesting to know that the lake doubles in size from season (from 3000 square kilometres to over 7500 square kilometres) once the monsoon season arrives. With so much water and an abundance of freshwater fish, many common things on land are here floating, ranging from restaurants, schools, fruit and vegetable plantations to even a police station.
For you and your travel companion, it is pure enjoyment to watch in the end the sun setting in the west as your captain slowly sails his trustworthy vessel across the calm lake surface. As soon as the last sunrays left the lake’s surface, we make our way back to the embarkation point and you will be comfortably driven back to your booked accommodation in Siem Reap.
